How To Overcome Doubt and Fear in ANY Area of Your Life

Anxiety sucks. Trust me, I know. but we cannot let the fears and stresses of life keep us from our goals, right?

I am someone who has had depression and anxiety for my entire adult life and I've had to learn how to navigate past those fears and frustrations in order to create CherishingfloMedia and my personal brand (the little personal brand I do have lol) and I know so many of you out there are having a similar struggle.

I know that sometimes those negative thoughts can creep in and dim our shine whether it's business goals or otherwise, but guess what? We not having it, SO LET'S GET INTO IT.


Acknowledge Your Feelings

First things first, it's okay to feel doubt and fear. We're only human, after all. But don't let those feelings define you. Take a moment to acknowledge them, give yourself some love, and then get ready to show up and show tf out!

Flip the Script

Time to rewrite that narrative, honey! When doubt whispers "You can't do it," flip it into "I am capable and strong." or if you're like me and need a little more edge, you can say "I am capable and strong so fuck off". Replace fear's "What if I fail?" with "What if I soar?" Speak positivity into existence and watch the magic happen.

Surround Yourself with Positivity

You know what they say, queens: your vibe attracts your tribe. And if you've been here you know OUR motto: EVERY VIBE HAS A TRIBE. Surround yourself with people who uplift and believe in you. Their positive energy will become your armor against doubt and fear. And hey, if they can see your magic, so can you!

Celebrate Your Wins

No matter how small, celebrate every victory, sis. I am writing this blog post after not writing a thing and feeling like my writing sucks for over a month (imposter syndrome child) and I am going to pat myself on the back afterwards! Overcoming doubt and fear is a journey, and each step forward is a win. Treat yourself to something special, journal your achievements, and let those good vibes keep you moving forward.

Visualize Your Success

Close your eyes and visualize your dream coming true. Feel the joy, the excitement, and the confidence. Visualization is a powerful tool to shift your focus from doubt to determination. Your mind believes what you tell it, so paint a picture of success.

Embrace Imperfection

Perfection is overrated, darling and trust me when I say I am also talking to myself. Embrace your imperfections and see them as a part of your unique beauty. Remember, it's the twists and turns that make your journey colorful and exciting. Embrace the messiness and watch how fear loses its grip.

Take Baby Steps

Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither is conquering doubt and fear. Take small steps towards your goals. Each tiny victory will add up, boosting your confidence along the way. Before you know it, you'll be strutting forward like the fierce queen you are. When I think about how far I've come since beginning my business in 2018, I am amazed.

Practice Self-Care

Self-love is your secret weapon, sis. Take time for yourself – whether it's a spa day, a long walk, or a cozy evening with your favorite book. When you prioritize self-care, you're telling doubt and fear that they're not welcome here. NOT WELCOMED HEAR BIHHHH.

Challenge Negative Thoughts

Doubt, anxiety, and fear often disguise themselves as facts. Challenge those negative thoughts with evidence of your achievements and capabilities. Keep a "wins" journal to remind yourself of how far you've come whenever doubt tries to knock on your door. I do this regularly and is a big reason why we have the monthly blessings segment of this blog because I want to consistently remind myself and others to acknowledge every single win.

Seek Support

Remember, it's okay to ask for help. Whether it's a mentor, therapist (100% supporter of black people in therapy but anyone overall should go), or a trusted friend, don't be afraid to seek support when you need it. Talking it out can provide fresh perspectives and valuable guidance.

The fears and doubts are going to come, but how you respond is what makes the difference. Are you ready? Comment down below!
